Product Spotlight - Finger ProtectionPosted on 2016-10-12
In order for a door to open, a hinge is required to allow movement in the frame, but this then creates a small gap between the door and the frame. What happens when little fingers find their way into those gaps and get trapped? We can tell you from experience that the aftermath usually involves lots of tears, a trip to the hospital and often it also results in permanent damage.
Bad enough if the incident occurs at home to one of your own children but imagine if you run a nursery or work in a school! The legal implications could be catastrophic.
According to RoSPA¹, every year there are over 600,000 accidents where the victim is 4 or under and at least 30,000 of these are incidents involving children trapping their fingers in doors.
There is a simple, quick and easy solution to prevent this of course, Fingerguards. Low maintenance products that cover the gap, preventing any access for little fingers.
